I've said it before, and I'll say it again... "Texas Music" is a very loose term around these parts. It's got a little bit of this, and a little bit of that all thrown into a massive melting pot of folk, rock, country, rockabilly, and Americana tunes. The good news is, most come out on the other side of that melting pot with a unique groove.

And that's okay.

5. The Wind and The Wave
